How will I know if my child is doing well at school?
The simple answer is to stay in touch with the class teacher! At drop-off and pick-up, via notes, organised meetings, homework diaries, attending parents evenings and open days. The teachers regularly assess progress both with testing and less formal assessment, such as observations and day-to-day marking. If the child's teacher, in collabotation with colleagues, feels that extra support is required, they will inform you.
